I am seeking information on the Abraham/John Statler families in loudoun county from early 1700 till 1856. I am in need of finding death records from loudoun county about 1790-1830. Family home still standing in woods off Morrisonville Road, out of lovettsville. Have found birth records for two young men, but on fathers will they are not mentioned, so I gathered they are deceased. Please advise me where to turn. I have been to the Balch library and have found nothing. Thank you.

Loudoun Co was not created until 1757, so there would be no records there for the early 1700's.

Death registration was not required in VA until 1853. Before that time you have to rely on family bibles, baptismal records, or tombstones.

From "Loudoun Co Will Book Abstracts, Books 2A-3C, Jun 1841 to Dec 1879" by Pat Duncan:

Will of 21 Nov 1854: son Samuel SLATER [STATLER?] (of Clinton Co. OH), daughter Elizabeth COOK (of Clinton Co. OH), daughter Catharine TRIBBY (of Clinton Co. OH), all slaves (except Moses & Lewis who have absconded) be emancipated 1y after my death, Noble S. BRADEN named Exor, witnesses R. L. WRIGHT & John LESLIE. Codicil of 21 Nov 1854 lists son as Samuel STATLER. Codicil of 12 Jan 1855. Received in court 14 Jul 1856. Exor Noble S. BRADEN. $60000 bond, security Joshua PUSEY. [2L:199]

From "New Jerusalem Lutheran Church Cemetery" by Hiatt and Scott:
STATLER, John, d. 30 Jun 1856 at 97 yrs.
STATLER, Priscilla, d. 28 Feb 1852 at 85 yrs.
